Health & Safety Negligence Causes Accident in Workplace


An internet video shows a fast-food chain employee falling in hot oil. Read about the health & safety negligence and how Heskins can provide a solution.

A video that has appeared on the internet shows an employee of a fast-food chain slipping and landing on a bucket of boiling oil. Not only is this severe negligence on the part of the employee that placed the bucket on the floor, but the video also displays a severe lack of health & safety standards being maintained in the first place.

As can be seen on our website we have the products that can solve almost any non-slip problem in almost any situation. Kitchens are a problematic location; grease is often present, fluids are often spilt and not cleaned up quickly and footwear generally lacks anything more than a basic sole. Kitchen slip risks can be solved easily, as Heskins produce non-abrasive non-slip products that can be easily introduced into strict cleaning regiments. Heskins non-abrasive anti-slip tapes will not harbor bacteria or food particles, we even show photos of our Resilient being used in a commercial kitchen to display how easy it is to manage and mitigate the slip risk.

Heskins non-abrasive anti-slip tapes are available in a wide range of variants, in a range of sizes, shapes and colours. The range is designed to help you create a specific non-abrasive anti-slip solution for your premises, ranging from non-slip tapes for use around areas exposed to water, to coarser non-abrasive finishes for use in environments that are exposed to other conta­minants.­ Heskins anti-slip tapes help to maintain regulations, reduce slip risks and increase health & safety standards.

What Is Health And Safety At The Work Place?

Workplace health and safety is about managing the risks to help protect personnel and your business. Over the years, some very serious injuries have happened in workplaces, so it’s very important to help keep people safe and prevent the risk of injuries happening. Heskins can provide the perfect solution with our Perma family. These marking tapes are designed for that purpose, being extremely durable, very quick to work with when installing and even coming in various colours & designs to improve the safety in your workplace further.

Health And Safety At Work Act 1974

This act places a legal duty on employers to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees to ensure they are all kept safe. Without following legislation, this could not only cause risk for personnel but could lead to significant fines, court days and worst-case scenario, the operation can be closed down. We strongly advise you to ensure the safety of personnel in your workplace.
